SALT LAKE CITY – The former Utes in the NFL continued to shine in week two. Heading into the third week of action, Utah will have 15 former Utes suit up for their respective teams, with 22 former players on rosters in the league. 
 
Former Ute Devin Lloyd continued to make an impact on the defensive side of the ball for Jacksonville. He had a team-high six tackles during week two. He helped secure the shutout for the Jaguars with his first interception in the fourth quarter as the Colts were driving.

 
In his second game as a Baltimore Raven, Marcus Williams led the Ravens defense in tackles with 10. He also had his first multi-interception game as a Raven. He has had an interception in each of the Ravens games this season. 

 
The Ute's alums will have one game in week three, where three former Utes will match up against each other. This week, Terrell Burgess and Matt Gay head to Arizona to take on Leki Fotu of the Cardinals.
